No Ark required as Saints march into Marshall Cup quarter finals


Arkleston Barrhead 1

Oban Saints 3

Jimmy Marshall Cup - 3rd Round

LAST Saturday at Cowan Park, Barrhead Oban Saints booked their place in the quarter finals of the Scottish Amateur Football League Jimmy Marshall Trophy with a 3-1 victory over Premier Division 2B leaders Arkleston Barrhead.

The journey to Barrhead was made in heavy rain on flooded roads but safe on the knowledge that the fixture was scheduled for the new 3G facility at Cowan Park. To the relief of all concerned no Ark was required and the rain cleared in time for kick off. The match was played in bright sunshine but with a strong wind blowing across the park towards the parkside touchline where the Saints contingent had assembled.

Manager Alex Craik made several changes from the line-up which had defeated Drumchapel Colts on Saints last outing the most notable being a first competitive appearance of the season for goalkeeper Graham ‘Sugar’ Douglas. Matthew Kelly was restored to the right back slot with David McArthur moving infield to partner skipper Marc Maccallum.
